    Ticket Scalpers

    I will be making a last minute decision to drive a couple of hours to attend the game on Saturday. Will there be ticket scalpers at or near the stadium selling tickets? If yes, do you have any buying recommendations?

    and bring a TON of cash, face value is $90 per ticket, you'll pay more than that.

    A couple people in our group had the opposite experience last week. Scalpers wanted $60 for hillside tickets early on. They ended up getting 2 endzone tickets for $50 total about 10 minutes before kickoff.

    Re: Ticket Scalpers

    I had some friends last week that waited to buy tickets after kickoff, and they said the scalpers still wanted $50 15 minutes after the game started.

    Also seemed there were many more people looking to buy than sell as well.

    You can still buy singles on the Iowa State site. I just punched in one ticket and it came out with section 22 row 17
